How Royal Falcon Enterprises got involved with coffee
In 1994, after selling his one-third interest of a very successful airfreight company, Anthony C. Marano-Ducarne, president and owner of Royal Falcon Enterprises, Inc., went to visit his very good friend and business associate, Tino Bonicalzi, the president of a very successful company, Ticimpex, in Gallarate, (MI) Italy. Both men being “country boys” at heart, decided to attend a livestock and agricultural country fair near the province town of Varese. They first stopped at their favorite caffè in Gallarate to have an espresso coffee and a brioche. As they began to enjoy their second cup of espresso coffee it started to rain. It was a heavy and steady downpour that continued unabated. Thirty minutes later it was still raining and while the waitress was delivering their third cup of espresso coffee, they decided to forgo their trip to the country fair. Instead, at Tino’s suggestion, they decided to go to the Fiera di Milano for the Coffee and Espresso Machine Show, it was indoors and who knows, it might even be interesting. At the fair they met the owners of a small company who were introducing their new and very interesting “Espresso Coffee Cialda/Pod Concept”.
It was that coincidence that introduced Anthony to the world of espresso coffee machines and he soon began to import into the USA espresso coffee machines and coffee. As a young boy his family had already instilled in him a passionate and romantic vision of coffee and cacao. His father, don Sebastiano, and his family before him, for more than two hundred years had been coffee and cacao growers on their farms in East Africa. During his tender years he had heard all the stories about the hard work, sacrifices and successes that his family had experienced in Africa.
